    Yeah 1.7 trillion but that's from banks. I'm talking about the little traders, the guys with the $5,000 accounts

    What market do you think is larger for small traders
  4. trillion : british or american ? To simplify how many millions?
  5. 1.7 trillions is a lot of millions!
  6. Forex, no doubt.

    Despite the increased access to the commodities market through ETFs and mini contracts, a lot of small traders still shy away from commodities. Forex, on the other hand, has exploded the last five years or so.
